Assessment, Evidence for Learning and CPD, with a focus on SEND
We are known for our assessment products, both paper and software, but our product range is much larger!
Over the last 25 years we have developed a range of products. We started with our paper assessment products, which are quick and easy to use, great for identifying next steps, but any graphs or showing progress is a manual exercise. Connecting Steps, our assessment uses the same approach, but allows multiple staff to access the same content and showing progress only takes a few clicks. Our assessment range within Connecting Steps is now much larger, covering a range of frameworks. Alongside our assessment products, we also have our evidence for learning platform Evisense and our CPD offerings, the SENDcast podcast and Training for Education, our onine learning platform.
Connecting Steps is the most popular and effective assessment software for pupils with SEND. A wide range of frameworks that are built into Connecting Steps helps schools get up and running as quickly as possible.
Connecting Steps is the standard asssessment system for pupils with SEND across a number of authorities in the UK. The simple interface, powerful features and flexible approach to progress means it works for a wide range of pupils. Connecting Steps V5 brings even more features and now works on iPads and other tablet devices.More Information
Evisense is a revolutionary tool for schools that stores and showcases events from a child’s time in education. This easy-to-use app provides valuable evidence of pupil progress and supports assessment in schools. Evisense can be used to record a pupil’s achievements and development through photos, videos and more. It is designed to be used from Early Years through to adolescence and beyond. It’s an ideal solution for supporting SEN in the classroom.More Information
Training for Education is a new way for schools to access CPD across a range of areas including school improvement, leadership and special educational needs and disability (SEND). Instead of accessing individual webinars, Training for Education provides schools with indepth content that schools can access forever, building a library of CPD they can access in the future.More Information
The SENDcast is a great way for all staff in a school to learn about different aspects of SEND, from classroom based approaches, to helping children deal with anxiety and grief. We also covered subjects like supporting pupils with SEND at home and advice for SENCOs around workload and whole school approaches.
Every week we have a different guest on talking about a different topic. We cover a huge range of topics that will support senior leaders, SENCOs, teachers, support staff and other professionals and parents.More Information
Our paper based assessment has been used in schools for over 25 years and is now in over 10,000 schools.
Our SEN and Primary curriculum assessment breakdowns are available as paper files you can photocopy within your schools. The assessment range has grown over the last 10 years and was updated in line with the changes to the Primary National Curriculum and the removal of P Levels. Our paper assessment portfolio covers the core assessment products for England.More Information
